Good morning everyone and happy Flag Day to all my fellow Americans. I love it when everyone has their flags flying. I have a couple of cards to post, but need to get them into the mail today or tomorrow before I post them. This evening my sorority sisters and I are going on a boat ride on the Manatee River and then to the River Rue for dinner. After the other day I am feeling just a little funny about going out on the water right now, but I am sure I will enjoy watching the sun go down on the Gulf as seen from the water as it is always beautiful.

I enjoy all those who post pics of their craft areas! One of these days everything may be brought back to my house and I will finally be able to put everything in one room especially for crafting instead of having to go from one place to another. By the time I get it all together I sometimes have lost the mood, know what I mean. Have a great day, it is suppose to be well up in the 90's again today, but I am trying not to complain as I complained all winter about the length of time we had cold weather here in Florida, or what is considered cold here. Hard to believe I grew up in the Midwest where it is REALLY COLD in the winter. Well off I go to finish checking out my blogging friends. Have a wonderful day!!!

I wish to thank everyone for your prayers for Michael and family and friends. They called off the search at dusk last night. We all knew early on it was a long shot to finding him. And God has chosen Michael to come home to him. I am sorry I had such a sad, sad post, but I felt he needed all the help he could get, so thank you again for your prayers. And PLEASE when going out on any kind of boat wear a safety jacket!!! Being a great swimmer is not always the answer, accidents happen.

I wouldn't normally make a request such as this, but I feel the need today. I ask anyone who may read this post today to pray for Michael Taylor of Bradenton. He is my granddaughter's boyfriend and last evening they were out on a fishing charter in the Gulf and Michael reached for a rope and fell overboard. There was blood in the water so it sounds like he may have been hit by the propeller. In any case the coast guard choppers and boats and many local fisherman are still out trying to find him, 10:00 a.m. It does not look good, but if you would please pray for a miracle for this young man and his family it would be very much appreciated. May you all have a great summer. Hugs to you all.

Thank You, Birthday

Here is one of my favorite stamps to use. I love using the versamark and chalk on it. I made a thank you card for a sorority sister who brought me a lovely candle as a housewarming gift when I moved back into my home. The top one is a birthday card for my 2nd. oldest grandson who will be 25 tomorrow. The thank you card is SU - Uppsy Daisy and I think the birthday is a Penny Black, but I am not sure.

I would love it if people would leave me a comment once in awhile, whether good, bad, or indifferent it would let me know if anyone is looking at my blog even though I don't always post all the time. Thanks so much.

Sorry my computer & I are fighting so am doing another post. I know I am behind in posting my friends OCS cards, but as I have said during my move I thought everything was organizzed, what a laugh. So as I run across the newer cards I will post them. Sorry gals!!

The pics are of the town square in Ocala, Fl. Each corner of the square, except for one, has a sculpture of a horse which is painted with all different kinds of scenes and images. The longer you stand and look at one the more you see hidden in the scenes. The artist's name is Amilcare Santini. The last card to show is a gift holder card for my just graduated H. S. granddaughter.
S. granddaughter.


The first card is from my OCS partner Berenice of Mexico City for March.


Don't forget to check out the new releases by Dustin Pike at High Hopes on June 14th!!! I am excited as I have just begun to look for images for boys aprroximate ages of 5 to 16 and they are more difficult to find then all of our lovely little girl images.

Ok, I lied. I have not had time to posst any pics. So many things to take care of this week and tomorrow I have my granddaughter's high school graduation. Way to Go Tess! Then Sunday is her graduation party. Had our sorority meeting at my home last night and the beat goes on. So as soon as this weekend is over I really must get back in the groove. Have a great weekend! Thanks for the note Curt.
